ABOUT







Elizabeth Carey Smith

Lettering artist and graphic designer in Brooklyn, NY, who runs the design studio, The Letter Office, and teaches typography and design at City College. She specializes in text-heavy publications and information graphics. Her typefaces:

  • At Type@Cooper (2011-2012), she designed the crisp, elegant and feminine geometric sans typeface Brightcut.
  • In 2011, she created Howland New at Type@Cooper. This is a revival of a typeface from 1892 by John F. Cumming. Mac McGrew comments on Howland: Howland was introduced by Dickinson in 1892 as a "companion series to DeVinne." The same design was called DeVinne Condensed (No.3) by Keystone Type Foundry, but differs from the De Vinne Condensed issued by other sources. Howland Open followed in 1894; it was copied by Linotype as Condensed Outline and suggested through the 1940s as a display typeface for classified advertising pages which banned bold types. Compare DeVinne Condensed, MacFarland Condensed.
  • Various typefaces that are part of Elizabeth's Imaginary Alphabets: Marguerite (Victorian), Harlemite (vernacular).
  • Typefaces in the works (as of 2017): Jada (a great rounded sans), Avedon.
